Hmmm, you should have posted to debian-www@l.d.o if it is for web page.

  --> click Documentation on the left column
  --> You see HOWTOs and click
      You have all the key TLDP document listed and index pages.

The only thing missing is words "The Linux Documentation Project" for me.

That should be addressed to debian-www@l.d.o (CCed)

As for Mozzila, TLDP is preset link as I see it.

For each package you find (RSS thingy?), it may be best to file bug
report.  See http://www.debian.org/Bugs/

Actually, this is a good point.  Current release process do not do this.
I wish release manager change their mind on release policy.

Release of sarge was planned on December last year.  So I think it will
be soon.
